Hint:

This is an algebraic expression. An algebraic expression consists of two components: a variable and a constant. A variable is a quantity that doesn't have a fixed value. It takes value as per the given conditions. It is generally denoted by an alphabet. A constant is a quantity with a fixed value. In the given question, we have to value of coefficient.

The correct answer is: 100


    The given expression is 100x.
    We have to find the value of coefficient in the above expression. A coefficient is a quantity with a fixed value. It is the value that is placed before any variable. In the above expression, we can see that 100 is the constant. And as it is placed before the variable x, it becomes the coefficient of x.
    Therefore, option (a), which is '100' , is the right option.
